4 Hot Chocolate Recipes to Warm Your Soul

I am completely obsessed with hot chocolate. When the temperature drops and winter comes around, it’s my go to beverage. I swear, it probably runs through my veins instead of blood.

In the spirit of Blogmas, I thought it would be great to share some delicious hot chocolate recipes that will warm your soul this holiday season.

Naughty List Hot Chocolate

This first recipe is perfect for your holiday parties this season (time for some vodka, whoo!). The mixture of alcohol and peppermint flavor give it a kick. It’s a very nice twist on the traditional hot chocolate. You can get the recipe by clicking here.

Nutella Hot Chocolate

Just when I thought hot chocolate couldn’t get any better, I came across this amazing recipe for Nutella hot chocolate. Miracles do exist, y’all. It’s a perfect combination of frothy and creamy and deliciousness. This is so delicious it should probably be illegal. The recipe can be found at the Cafe Delites website.

Cozy Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Peppermint everything makes me happy in the winter. I love cozying up on the couch with a good book and a cup of my white chocolate peppermint tea from Teavana. So, it’s not surprise that I’d fall head over heels in love with the hot chocolate version (minus the white chocolate). Marzia over at Little Spice Jar has the perfect recipe for this mouthwatering drink.

Pumpkin Spice White Hot Chocolate

While Pumpkin Spice is not my favorite (I know, I’m super cray), this recipe over at Tidy Mom is just perfect enough to make me crave a pumpkin spice hot chocolate. I think it’ll satisfy anyone who loves a good Pumpkin Spice latte – and make them want to drink it just as much.

Okay, I’m gonna have to go make me a cup or two of hot chocolate right now. Looks like I just need to find some peppermint, vanilla, pumpkin spice, and all the other goodies these recipes include. Oh, and I can’t forget the Cool Whip and giant marshmallows.

Did you find a new recipe that you want to try this winter? Hopefully one of them speaks to you! Share and comment down below – I’d love to find out if you try any of them!
